A warm and welcoming family pub on the border with Chadderton. This historic location is by the long-closed (1964) Middleton Junction railway station. Smart interior is of a T-shape - the bar in the centre divides up the space between a small lounge on one side, and a pool room on the other. A large, peaceful, and well-maintained beer garden at the rear is a real suntrap, and has plenty of play things to keep children amused. A motorcycle group meets at the pub on Thursdays. The function room is free to hire.
